is Aiken Technical College’s dual enrollment program. It is designed to allow qualified and highly motivated Aiken County, private or home-schooled high school students the opportunity to earn college credits while still in high school by taking either general studies classes, or enrolling in either the Pre-Engineering or Pre-Health Academy. Students can earn both high school and college credit (dual credit) or just college credit (concurrent).
students can enroll in many general education courses that are required for, and transfer to, many majors at many four-year colleges and universities. In addition, these transferable courses at ATC cost much less than most other colleges and universities in the CSRA.
Pre-Engineering and Pre-Health Academy students are exposed to a variety of majors within their chosen field, thus giving them a head-start on finding the specialty they wish to pursue in a college major.
All College Now applicants (General college classes and Academies) will need to meet the following minimum criteria:
PSAT scores of at least 50/50 OR
ACT combined of at least 21 OR
SAT scores of at least 500/500 AND
Be in the top 25% of their class
College Now applicants who do not meet these requirements may take the free COMPASS placement test on campus at ATC, but will need to test into college-level courses in order to be accepted in the College Now Program.
